Well let’s face it. Probably the last thing that you want to do when taking a dump in the morning, is to visualise the foul-smelling product floating around and getting flushed down the pot. But you know what? The colour and consistency of your stools can tell a lot about what sort of digestive disorders you may be having. In fact, doctors diagnose a wide variety of diseases and digestive problems exactly by doing this! So we have put together a quick download (pun intended) of what you should be looking out for, as you spend time on the golden throne!Stools identify digestive problems

So the next time you are suspecting that something is wrong with your digestive system, do take a look at your dump. It may actually help you figure out what’s wrong. And your doctor may truly appreciate the additional information you can provide when you go for your consult.
